The question is, who is the best counter you will pick if you see Yorick on the opposing team in ranked?
He just owns top so much that it is not even funny.
The community consensus is indeed that Yorick is the strongest top in the game.
However, the community also agrees that Olaf is the strongest top in the game.
Most of the community will also agree that Shen is way too strong as he is now. He might well be the strongest top in the game atm!
Malphite, even after his nerf, still doesn't have any hardcounters and still scales so well into the lategame. One might even dare call him the strongest top in the game!
By the way, Jax is often banned and scales so well... I've heard many people call him the strongest top in the game atm!
Irelia, even after all her nerfs doesn't have a hardcounter and scales super hard into the lategame. I feel many players consider her the strongest top in the game.
I think Darius deserves an honorable mention here too. He's so **** easy to use, deals so much damage and always wins every lane according to a decent portion of the community. From the Darius QQ, I think most people consider him the strongest top in the game!
Conclusion: don't listen to what "the community" sais. And don't talk about their "consensus". Because there are A LOT of champions that are "the best champion in the game" if you're prone to confirmation bias...
Here are some champions that I like picking against Yorick:
Riven, Cho'Gath, Lee Sin, Jax and Warwick.
Here are the tops I own that I really wouldn't play against Yorick: Kennen
EDIT: How could I forget Rumble? I mean, he's the strongest top in the whole game! Seen streamers QQ about him!
Lee Sin is still a strong top. His versitilaty, and the fact that he might just be the strongest lvl 3 duelist in the game might just make him the strongest top in the game if he can push his lead?
Also, I still see Riven QQ out there. Though I've only seen 1 or 2 summoners who consider her the strongest top in the game.
